What if you found yourself inside a game? Lewis and thousands of others found themselves inside the online MMORPG: Swordsmaster. The thing is, there is no reviving, no multiple lives; if you die in-game, you die in real life. Lewis soon learns that the only way to be free is to beat the game, and that can't be done alone. Can you really trust someone you hardly know?


3. Shopping

Light shone down through the window. Lewis grunted and rolled over.

“Get your lazy ass out of bed.” A foot connected with his back, hard.

He opened his eyes to see Adrianna standing over him. She looked down her nose at him, as if he were a disgusting bug.

“We’re going shopping.”


One hour and fourteen minutes later, they were walking round the square, splitting into groups to buy food and swords and armour.

“What’s Adrianna’s deal, anyway? She always seems so-” Lewis searched for the right word as he and Mike stocked up on medicine.

“Rude, heartless, bitchy?” He chuckled, “It’s how she shows her love; she isn’t really the hugs-and-friendly-words type.”

“So you know her then?”

“Of course,” He nodded, “been stuck with her since middle school.”

“So, I’m guessing you two don’t get along, then.” Lewis searched through the jars for the medicines specified by their peculiar leader.

“What do you think I’m second in command for? She’s my best friend.”

“I-I can see why.” Lewis laughed.

The two boys paid the merchant and left for the tavern Nina had suggested. She didn’t seem very cheerful since Rosie died. Well. It was to be expected, wasn’t it? In a way, Lewis envied Nina. He envied all of the guild members. They had memories. He didn’t.

When they arrived, Buttercup and Nina had already reserved a table for them.

“No sign of Adi yet?” Nina asked them as they sat down.

“Nah, she’s probably busy checking out all the swords. I think she probably has a fetish for them or something.” Mike stretched and shared out the medicines equally, saving some for Adrianna. Buttercup shared out food for later, and Nina gave the boys some new, higher level armour.

“We’ll need the higher level stuff. If we’re gonna take down that boss then we have to level ourselves up.” Nina took a sip of her drink.

“Yo, Loo,” Adrianna called from the door, “got you a proper sword.”

She took a sword and sheath out of her inventory and thrust it at Lewis. Then she gave money to the others.

“Why didn’t they get a sword?” He asked.

“Everyone has different preferences when it comes to weapons.” She began, “I know for a fact that Buttercup can’t even lift my sword, because she’s used to something quick and light, where I would usually use something heavier to deal more damage. It’s all about using everyone’s skills to the advantage. You, well, you have no skills.” Mike glared at her and she huffed. “Yet.”
